Images of American Political History: The College of New Jersey: A nice compilation of 500 images that have helped define America's political history. Images are ordered chronologically.

PoliticalGraveyard.com: A very fun site. The "Graveyard" will provide brief biographical information on a political figure, plus the place where he or she is burried. Use the alphabetical name index, search by county, state, or even find out who was born on the same day as you, or passed on on that day. In case you were wondering, U.S. Grant was burried at the General Grant Memorial in New York, New York.

Herblock's History: Political Cartoons from the Crash to the Millennium: A site to be enjoyed as much as used. The Library of Congress has compiled highlights from the career of Washington Post cartooing great Herb Block, a fella who communicated the issues of the day through art from Hoover to Clinton. A nice feature of the site is its chronological structuring as well as the image-by-image annotations that set the historic context for Block's work.

Harry S. Truman Presidential Museum & Library: A site dedicated to the memory of one of the Union's more flamboyant Presidents. Maintained by the Truman Presdidential Library, one will find several useful links on the history of American politics during the 1940s and 50s. Especially useful will be Project Whistlestop, an educational site full of easy-to-understand text, photographs, documents, and cartoons relating to the Truman Administration. The mouse stops here!

Nuclear Issues in India and Pakistan: University of California, Berkeley: A superb site on a very timely topic. Really nothing more than a simple index, but links are up-to-date, and one can count of gaining a better understanding of the fundamental issues surrounding a very complicated stand-off.

American Political History On-Line: University of Illinois at Chicago: A pretty cool site, full of some very good links. It's a bit disorganized, but is certainly worth browsing as there are plenty of useful sites to be had.

Encyclopedia Smithsonian: Political History: Smithsonian Institute: A product of the nation's premier academic museum, this is not a traditional reference site, but does provide a solid list of links to exhibits; like Jensen's site, definitely worth the browse.

Political History: BUBL Information Serice (UK): This English site is perhaps the best option for finding authoritative historical resources on governments other than the U.S. Expect extensive annotating and good information on the updating of pages.

Political History Resources: Political Studies Association (UK): Another English site from the Political History Association. This is a simple listing of links that has a bent toward American politics, but solid sites nonetheless.

American Political History Initiative: A great site that a specific strength in its compilation of primary source materials. Also a good listing of authoritative links on a number of political history topics.

Biographical Directory of the United States Congress, 1774 to Present:Very cool site from Congress--good, clean interface with tons of biographical information on nearly every Congress person, well, since before the United States was a country.
